Our Lord, knowing that there was no other way than his death for the redemption of the world *still* prayed three times that, if it were possible, the cup should pass from him. I think those of us who think war necessary should be praying our hearts out for peace. Not for any old peace but for a just peace. God still works wonders in our day and we should still hope that it would not come to war to get Saddam outta there. I can see no harm in doing as the Pope asks.
